Toronto is the largest city in Canada and is the provincial capital of Ontario. With over 2.5 million residents, it is the fifth-most populous municipality in North America.

Population: 2.800.000

As Canada's economic capital, Toronto is considered a global city and is one of the top financial cities in the world.

Toronto's population is cosmopolitan and international. Because of the city's low crime rates, clean environment, generally high standard of living, and friendlier attitudes to diversity, the Economist Intelligence Unit and the Mercer Quality of Living Survey consistently rate Toronto as one of the world’s most livable cities.

Toronto has a semi-continental climate, with a warm, humid summer and a cold winter. Toronto’s climate is modified by its location on the shores of Lake Ontario. The water in the lake ensures Toronto is warmer in winter and cooler in summer than it would otherwise be.

The Great Lakes location is also the source of Toronto’s summer humidity, which many people find uncomfortable.

Although Toronto is one of Canada’s warmer cities in winter, winters are still severe, with snow on the ground most days between mid-December and mid-March. Snow deeper than 1 cm is seen on 65 days a year on average.
